Data Acquisition & Telemetry


Tough problems solved wirelessly

June 2010 Data Acquisition & Telemetry

ProSoft Technology 802.11n Industrial Hotspot radios.

ProSoft Technology’s 802.11n Industrial Hotspot solutions provide performance for high capacity networks and offer a wireless solution for applications with moving or obstructed environments that are traditionally difficult to solve. The RLXIBIHxN series delivers 802.11n technology speeds, security and flexibility while meeting the specific needs of industrial customers who demand ease of deployment and reliable industrial communication.

The family provides reliable I/O message delivery, industrial temperature range and hazardous location ratings, as well as radio security for centralised management of security policies, VLANs for network traffic segmentation, and quality of service (QoS) for data prioritisation and dual radio functionality. The radios leverage the latest technology to provide greater flexibility and performance in a broad range of manufacturing and production applications. They also improve performance for high-bandwidth video/voice applications and high packet-rate control applications and provide better signal sensitivity and range. Options available include Single (RLXIB-IHN), Dual (RLXIB-IH2N), and Watertight Dual (RLXIB-IH2N-W) Industrial Hotspots.

The radios use MIMO (multiple input, multiple output), a technology which uses up to three antennas to enable high speed data rates up to 300 Mbps, providing advanced performance in industrial environments. Where concerns about network crowding exist, the radios can operate in the 5 GHz Band, which contains 23 non-overlapping channels. 5 GHz also provides an alternative to the popular 2,4 GHz Band, which may have limited availability if already used in existing installations.

Each product has two radios in one unit and only requires one Ethernet connection. The dual radios can be used in lieu of a repeater to extend the range of a wireless network without sacrificing speed.
